Primary tabs


I have educational training in Biochemistry and research experience of more than fifteen years in Nano-biotechnology, cell and molecular bioimaging, biosensors and bioengineering. My group is working on multiplexed Biosensors and Diagnostics using Nanotechnology, Biomemetics and Bioengineering approach. The focus is on metabolic diseases, infectious diseases and biological war-fare agents. Another area of interest is to evolve nanotechnology approach for neutraceuticals (phytochemicals) therapy in health and cure. The emphasis is on how an integrated approach of nanotechnology, biomemetics and metabolic engineering can improve the health status and find cure in harmony with nature.
